Apple Dodged $2.4 Billion In Taxes Last Year Via ThinkProgress: "What Apple hasn't told Americans, though, is that an intricate financial set up utilizing low-tax states in the US and offshore tax havens has allowed it to skirt billions of dollars in American taxes over the last decade. By setting up financial offices in states like Nevada — which has no income tax — and routing other profits through Ireland, Luxembourg, and nations in the Caribbean, Apple avoided an estimated $2.4 billion in American taxes in 2011 alone...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Transcript Well, president Barroso, you're certainly flexing your muscles, using the powers given to you with the Lisbon treaty which you pushed through using illegitimate means. You now do everything you can on the world stage and within the EU to acquire all the attributes of statehood. And nowhere could that be more apparent than in your recent proposal for a direct tax to be levied by the European institutions on the peoples of this continent. Of course in previous times there was a very successful independence movement that campaigned on the slogan of 'No taxation witout representation'. And you certainly, sir, are not a representative. We haven't voted for you and we can't remove you. So I think with this direct tax you actually made a mistake. And what an expensive club ...
Five rules to better understand taxation (Rule#1) These five rules to better understand taxation were delivered by John Fox during his conversation with Social Policy Connections guests on March 18 2009 at the Yarra Theological Union in Box Hill. John Fox spent 36 years wrestling with tax laws as a lawyer in Washington, DC He is the author of the highly praised books If Americans Really Understood the Income Tax and 10 tax questions the candidates dont want you to ask (see www.10). Professor Fox is a frequent media commentator on the distortions in the US tax system. His articles on whats right and wrong with the US revenue system have appeared in The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and many other newspapers and internet sites. He presently teaches Winners and Losers, a course on US tax policy at Mount Holyoke College. Professor Foxs lecture focused on Making taxation more equitable. His talk illustrated the need for major systemic tax reforms as a matter of social justice. With the elections of President Obama and Prime Minister Rudd, Fox emphasized that governments have a fresh opportunity to now undertake a major reform of tax policies in order create a more just tax system.
Theft & Taxes The idea for this was an example given in an address titled "The Proper Role of Government" by former secretary of agriculture Ezra Taft Bensen. you can watch his full speech here: Also, I don't actually advocate that there never be taxes for any reason, as you may infer from watching this video. I merely oppose taxation for the purpose of redistribution of wealth. I know we need a police to protect against crime and an army to protect against invasion and roads to get around. That money has to come from somewhere. Made with an old version of flash that wouldn't get the timings exactly right. But I think you still get the point. For more about me, check out:

Economics is Fun, Part 10: Taxation Dr Madsen Pirie, President of the Adam Smith Institute, is attempting to prove that economics is fun. His new book, Economics Made Simple: How Money, Trade and Markets Really Work, is available from Amazon now in paper and Kindle formats: How do banks work? What does the City do? Why do prices rise or fall? Is competition wasteful? How can we create more wealth? What causes globalization and how does it affect people? This book answers these and other questions, not in the way that economics textbooks do - with graphs, abstract models, jargon-ridden theory, and mathematical equations - but through narrative and lucid explanation rooted in everyday experience and common-sense intuitions. This is a personal school of economics for anyone who has ever wanted to know how money, trade and markets really work. The study of economics has never been so enjoyable - or eye-opening.

Will Taxing the Rich Fix the Deficit? The government's budget deficit in 2009 was $1.5 trillion. Many have suggested raising taxes on the rich to cover the difference between what the government collected in revenue and what it spent. Is that a realistic solution? Economics professor Antony Davies uses data to demonstrate why taxing the rich will not be sufficient to make the budget deficit disappear. He says, "The budget deficit is so large that there simply aren't enough rich people to tax to raise enough to balance the budget." Instead, it's time to work on legitimate solutions, like cutting spending.

Judge Napolitano: Why Taxation is Theft, Abortion is Murder, & Gov't is Dangerous "I'll say this plainly, I've said it before - Taxation is theft. It presumes the government has a higher claim on our property than we do," says Judge Andrew Napolitano, the host of Fox Business' Freedom Watch and the author of the new book, It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom. Reason's Nick Gillespie sat down with the outspoken libertarian commentator to discuss topics ranging from abortion (the judge is fiercely pro-life) to Occupy Wall Street (he welcomes the protest against corporatism) to Rep. Ron Paul ("the Barry Goldwater" of our moment) to the role of religion in the quest for freedom. About 25 minutes. Camera by Jim Epstein and Joshua Swain; edited by Swain.

John McCain On Taxing Rich People From the Hardball College Tour, October 12, 2000: UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi. Since I've been studying politics, I've had this question that I've never fully understand. Why is it that someone like my father, who goes to school for 13 years, gets penalized in a huge tax bracket because he's a doctor? Why is that -- why does he have to pay higher taxes than everybody else, just because he makes more money? Why -- how is that fair? MATTHEWS: You mean... MCCAIN: I think your question -- questioning the fundamentals of a progressive tax system where people who make more money pay more in taxes than a flat, across-the-board percentage. I think it's to some degree because we feel, obviously, that wealthy people can afford more. We have over the years, beginning with John F. Kennedy, reduced some of those marginal tax rates to make them less onerous. But I believe that when you really look at the tax code today, the very wealthy, because they can afford tax lawyers and all kinds of loopholes, really don't pay nearly as much as you think they do when you just look at the percentages. And I think middle-income Americans, working Americans, when the account and payroll taxes, sales taxes, mortgage pay -- all of the taxes that working Americans pay, I think they -- you would think that they also deserve significant relief, in my view... MATTHEWS: How many -- how many people here believe that the people who made the highest level of incomes in this country should pay a higher percentage ...

No Taxation by Misrepresentation: Rejecting the Dishonest Obamacare Tax In his brief, in-depth essay, "No Taxation by Misrepresentation: Rejecting the Dishonest Obamacare Tax," former Speaker of the House and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich examines whether President Obama has been honest with the American people about the tax at the heart of Obamacare. Gingrich considers what President Obama told the public when he was trying to pass the health care bill and contrasts it with the arguments his administration made before the Supreme Court to defend the law. He then reveals the stunning claims made by President Obama and his allies since the Supreme Court ruling -- asking whether an American president has the power to rewrite history and alter forever the bond between the people and their elected representatives. Gingrich follows his essay with three appendices cataloging statements made by President Obama, his lawyers, his staffers and surrogates about the Obama Tax. You can see the "evolution" of the Obama position play out in their own words. This book and its appendices are an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to understand the best case against the President this fall. To learn more visit: .
What is Progressive Taxation? A progressive tax system reduces the tax burden of people with a lower ability-to-pay, and demands more from people with a higher ability-to-pay. In this video I interview Zach Schiller of Policy Matters Ohio. Some of my thoughts on progressive taxation are as follows... I've heard Kasich say that high taxes on the excess money of the affluent, punish success. High taxes on the upper income of the affluent don't punish success, because success is being a good person and making good things happen in the world. That kind of success is its own reward, and average everyday people are intrinsically motivated to contribute in that way. When a person is emotionally healthy, and they have an area of talent, they like to express that talent for the sake of promoting the common good/general welfare. Having lots of money is not success. That's just having lots of money. Why should anyone have lots of money when other people are going without? Ben Franklin, one of the founding fathers would agree with me. And the Jesus character in the bible told a rich man to sell all he had and give the money to the poor, so he might have agreed with me too. I personally believe that everyone on the planet can have a middle class level of economic security, and that Western Europe is a good model for what that can look like. The carbon footprint of the average European is only two or three planets, and with the direction they're moving with renewable energy, they will soon be down to one planet ...
Taxation and Dead Weight Loss The effect of taxation on the equilibrium price and quantity
Bar Stool Economics and How Taxes Work Lee Doren from HowTheWorldWorks created this video. HowTheWorldWorks has been around for about two years. Mother Jones Chart: goo.gl Original Story: goo.gl Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. The seventh would pay $7. The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. So, that's what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are all such good customers", he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20". Drinks for the ten now cost just $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his "fair share?" They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. And so: The ...
